Meet our Youth Coordinators!
In all the communities that we hold Taking Action! workshops, our team is led by a local youth coordinator (sometimes two!) whose job it is to plan the event, get the community involved and spread the word about Taking Action! These are some truly awesome and inspiring youth!
